    Does anyone have any tips on using this lens for panoramic work? Maybe my Googling skills are a little off today, but I'm having trouble finding any how-tos or tutorials on how to do this. :confused:
     
  2. Well i would think it would be difficult because of the distortion , but I may be wrong.

    Bill - I see tons of examples of people adapting the 10.5mm to Canon cameras and using it for panoramic work. It's been tough finding workflows though.

    Capture NX2 (perhaps NX1 also) has a function to straighten out the distortion with that lens. From NX2's help file:

    However, since you have to adjust the distortion settings manually using it, it may take a while to get it 'just right' to match the other photos.

    I would probably then use a stitching program to stitch the exported jpg's together. I'd imagine you'd have to repeat the process multiple times until you're satisfied.
